More a walk than a stroll

Hello, everyone.

Yesterday we went over to the Scenic Wetlands Center and Butterfly Garden in Edinburg. (For my out of area readers, this is how the town's name is correctly spelled. The town is in south Texas.)

We found some neat birds and some neat flowers.

Zoomed in from across the large holding pond: white egrets and something else. (Top left one moved his head!)

Tulipan, a native hibiscus of the region

Prickly pears (also called nopal) in a less-common color set.
Some of these flowers are outright red! (Most in this area have yellow flowers.)
